Brent Rosengren Celebrates 10 Years at BrightWave

  It’s Monday at noon. Chief Client Officer Brent Rosengren sits in the Nessie conference room, waxing Rosengrenian—completely unaware of what is taking place just 20 feet away. BrightWavers put on grass skirts, tiki masks and rainbow leis in the back corner of the parking lot, confusing the downstairs neighbors quite a bit. Ford Fry’s People’s Food Truck wheels around back, with the first whiffs… Read more »

The Rolling Stones, Atlanta… & BrightWave?

If you’re in Atlanta, you’d have to be living under a rock (or perhaps stone?) to miss that the greatest rock n’ roll band of all time came to town for the last time. And that reminded me that Mick Jagger and BrightWave, we go way back. Like back to a yacht in Mediterranean (kind of). Yes, I’ll explain. I had the good fortune to… Read more »

BrightWave’s 2014 Quartermaster – Laura Giles

Strategic vision. Thoughtful leadership. Contagious laughter. There are many reasons why Director of Account Management (& Most Interesting Lady in the World) Laura Giles was named the 2014 Email Marketing Quartermaster. Wait, let us back up a bit: What is a Quartermaster? In nautical parlance, he or she is an able-bodied seaman who helps navigate and steer the ship. And, on a pirate ship, the… Read more »

We Ran 110 Miles with the Mizuno Baton

One thing that we love about working on the email program for our client Mizuno is the passion and conviction they have—both the company and the fans. Mizuno truly believes that running is powerful, that it can change the world one person at a time. It’s pretty easy to get infected with that kind of positive thinking and take to the open road (even with… Read more »

The New BrightWave Office—And the Superpowers It Gives Us

We’ve noticed something kind of…unusual here at BrightWave lately: Having a beautiful, spacious, calming new workspace has given us even more email superpowers. Yes, a few months back we bid a fond farewell to our office on Peachtree & 25th and moved into a crazy-awesome office just up the road. We’ve been brimming with pride over our new space, which is over twice the size… Read more »

BrightWave is Moving: An Ode to Our Home on Peachtree & 25th

It’s no secret that BrightWave is a fast-growing company. One of the realities of those growth spurts is that—like many a lanky 11-year-old—we looked down and our pants were about 5 inches too short. That’s right, in the last three to four years we majorly outgrew our space. This week we move into incredible new digs that will double our working space. If you’re a… Read more »

Day of Awesomeness: A Tradition of Volunteering, Surprises & Stick-On ’Staches

  Here at BrightWave, we like to be playful at heart, to take a few risks, to delight our co-workers, clients and community—just because. Enter: Day of Awesomeness. As the name so righteously implies, Day of Awesomeness is a part of the BrightWave DNA in which once a quarter our (already awesome) team members spend an entire workday just doing something to brighten other people’s… Read more »

BrightWave’s 2013 Quartermaster – Alicia Bellis

In 2012, we came up with a pretty cool Employee of the Year award at our agency, the Quartermaster. In case you don’t know, we’ve got a thing for nautical terms around here. In many navies, the “quartermaster” is the person responsible for steering the ship and for navigation, so we found the term appropriate. At the 2012 holiday party, the first ever Quartermaster award… Read more »

BrightWave’s First Quartermaster – Jessica Higgins

I have wanted to do a BrightWave Employee of the Year award for quite some time. Like a lot of internal projects, client work and other priorities got in the way. We made it a reality this year and didn’t want it to be some lame award without much meaning or anything truly special. We wanted it to be reflective of the culture and company… Read more »
